A brutal hit-and-run killing opens the path to another 25-year-old crime.
A brilliant novel in the acclaimed Faraday series, from the author of NO LOVELIER DEATH. Past midnight, a horribly mutilated body is discovered on a road in Portsmouth, evidently killed in a hit and run.
There are no witnesses - and few regrets. Why? Because the victim had been terrorising an entire estate.
DI Joe Faraday unpicks the dead man's life, uncovering a world of hurt that defies description. Ex-cop Paul Winter, meanwhile, has been sucked into even deeper water.
Drug lord Bazza Mackenzie's married daughter is having an affair . . . with a high ranking detective. And it's Winter's job to rein her in. Violence, drug-running, kidnap, murder. Both Faraday and Winter must battle against near-impossible odds.
But whose interests will justice finally serve?
